A really unique gift for someone who already has everything. A lovely reminder of the things that happened in the 1950's - the adverts especially made us all chuckle. A good buy!

The 60's Decade Book was brilliant! Very well presented and the recipient loved it. Thank you.

What on earth do you buy for a ruby wedding anniversary gift for relatives ? They don't NEED anything. They don't do ornaments or trinkets with any sentimental messages on them. Tricky !I solved the problem with this great gift. Their wedding was in 1976 so they both could share their memories of the whole decade together. Perfect, and different.Thank you.
Absolutely brilliant. My father loved the A3 embossed book... Great quality and service... Thank you..

Not impressed with customer service
I raised an issue with the company but they have not responded. Basically I asked for an invoice for the TWO books I ordered (at a cost of over £60). I wanted to check costs as on the website the nice gift box is advertised as being free but when I purchased my books I was charged £5 per gift box. Also postage advertised at just over £3 but I'm sure I was charged more than this (per book)! I look forward to perhaps getting a response/explanation now.

Thank you for your review.
We can see that an email was sent on Friday which we do apologise for the delay in responding, our responses usually take longer from the weekend due to high volumes. As requested, copies of your email confirmations have been forwarded in separate emails, if you have any queries please get back to us?
Our web sessions are usually recorded therefore we have viewed your session and can confirm that on both orders you were advised of the additional cost of £5.00 for the gift box and standard postage costs which is clearly advertised on the website. What you are referring to with regards to a free gift box and reduced postage is our trade website however you have ordered via our retail site, these are two completely different websites.
Sorry for any confusion caused, if you need any further assistance please contact us.
Kind regards In the Book.

Very satisfied with the product
Very satisfied with the product. Only 1 package came. A little worried because I ordered 2 books.
